Reading downloaded newspapers

I've downloaded newspapers as .zip files, but when I try to open the hml file it just becomes garbage.  Do I need another program to open them?  What should I do that I'm not doing?

Hi Effie,

They do need to be read within a DAISY reading tool of some sort.  If you're on a mobile device like an Android or Apple phone or tablet you can use one of our apps such as Dolphin Easy Reader, Go Read, or Voice Dream Reader.  If on a computer you can try to open the html manually, but you do need to extract the files from the zip file before opening, otherwise I recommend a DAISY reading application on the computer as well such as Open Lore Reader or Kurzweil.
